Hematologist needed!: If you are a non-smoker, the hct of 62.5% strongly indicates a "myeloproliferative" disorder of which polycythemia vera is a variant and can give bone pain, especially if there is a high viscosity that limits blood flow and tissue oxygen delivery. The uric acid is not significantly elevated and not playing a role in your symptoms, but ongoing monitoring is required with blood disorders. ...Read more

No: Acne is only mildly related to diet. While dairy exacerbates it in some people, my answer is still no unless in your case the link is clear. And it is moot. All acne can be managed until it remits on its own. If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your physician. ...Read more

Have neck pain for 16 days. Doctor gave me naprosyn (naproxen) but hasn't helped pain. Would a Medrol dose pack help or does it have same effect as naprosyn (naproxen)?

Have neck pain for 16 days. Doctor gave me naprosyn (naproxen) but hasn't helped pain. Would a Medrol dose pack help or does it have same effect as naprosyn (naproxen)?

Different effect : A Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pack is a steroid, that's a very potent anti-inflammatory. If naprosyn's not working, you need to find the cause of the problem.

She s/he will diagnose, and order additional tests and labs as needed. ...Read more
